Record a null sit

Record a null sit by changing the student's grade to NS. You can do this for multiple students at once from the Process Course Results screen or for an individual student in their little i button.

Change grades from Process Course Results

You can select one or more students in the Process Course Results screen and change their grade to NS at the same time. 

This will only change the grade - not the mark - and it will remain provisional so you'll still need to ratify and publish it.

Process summary

  1. Go to Process Course Results
  2. Filter or search for the students you want
  3. Select the students
    • Use the tick boxes on the left to select all or specific students
  4. Click the Action menu and select 'Change grades'
    • Check the information on the pop up box (i.e. the number of student's you've selected)
  5. Choose the Null sit (NS) grade from the drop down list and click Save changes

The grades will now be changed to null sit.

If you need to add notes for these students the fastest way would be to filter the list to only show null sits and then add them for each student via the small pencil icon to the right of the student's UUN. 

You can then ratify and publish the result (see Next steps below).

Change the grade for an individual student

You can change the grade for a single student from Process Course Results as per above.

You can also change it from the student's little i button following the process below.

Next steps

The NS result needs to be ratified so it doesn't show as 'provisional' on the progression reports. If it's still provisional it can cause delays to processing, especially if the course is in another school and they need to check if the result is confirmed. 

It should also be published so the NS grade shows in the Student Hub and so the student sees the result on their EUCLID account. They'll see the description: "Null sit - special circumstances: does not count as an assessment attempt".
